Yikes, sounds like a right shithole. Stuff like that makes you realise that over here isn't all that bad after all.

I'm not sure if it's Lithuania specifically, but I've heard general warnings about people being gently 'kidnapped' in strip joints and the like. Going in and not being let out until they've handed all their cash over.
I'd say make sure you don't go in any seedy looking back-street places.
I hope Hostel isn't the in flight movie

Registered 9 years agoRare's summary of the stag weekend doesn't exactly paint a picture of awesome. Hostel on the other hand had boobies.
I've been to Latvia and Prague and never experienced anything like this.
Vilnius as a city is beautiful. We stayed in Old Town and the cathedrals/churches and buildings are very impressive. We had fantastic weather too.
I would have gone back with my wife and kids, but not now

Registered 10 years agoMate that sounds awful! It's something I hadn't really noticed or thought about when I had been there. It's such a shame that such a beautiful city can have so many arseholes. Hope that you managed to have some good experiences while you were there. There is nothing worse then having an event like that ruined.
God, really sorry to hear that rare, that is a big downer. I've long been toying with a visit to the Baltics, your experience just moved that well down my list.

Oh and forgot to mention - Vilnius is in the running for European City of Culture 2009.
I need to dispute that!
For "European City of Culture" read "European City with a reputation for having no culture and which would like to change that with some free marketing" - that's how it has usually worked in the past.

Registered 8 years agosome people at work went to Riga on a stag trip and it didn't go that well, they went into some bar (not a seedy strip club and got charged a huge amount for a few drinks) After a lot of shouting and threats back and forth they paid the normal price and left.
Would not mind going to Vilnius
